For the last 3 weeks, our trip to the pumpkin patch with Little Miss’ preschool has been postponed. Torrential rain and bitter cold turned Oct 16th into the 23rd, and then again the 23rd into the 30th. It was SO worth the wait!
The excitement was palpable, most of the kids had never been on a school bus before. There were a lot of us parents that just decided to tag along which made this a great family outing and a chance to get to know each other. Younger brothers and sisters were invited to tag along as well so we had kids from just a few months of age, tucked inside cozy baby bjorns to about 5 years old.
When we first arrived, everybody was treated to the last of the fresh picked apples and then, we hoped the tractor pulled shuttle, passed the orchard, to the pumpkin patch. There were many that had passed their prime, but then there were some that were just perfect. And everyone got their pick.
After picking, the morning was full : Petting farms, feeding clover to the alpacas, eating bannock over an open fire and giant trampolines! The sun was shining, the air was cool but comfortable. It was just the perfect morning.
Maybe that is why both Little Man and Miss napped for over 3 hours in the afternoon! 🙂
I hope you all had a lovely day. Last day of October tomorrow, how quickly time flies. They are announcing our first snow here on Saturday, looks like it might be a very early winter.
Stay warm everyone!
